It sounds interesting, but I’d always be wondering how long it would be before Verytas got gamed or hacked. Can “truth” be abstracted from algorithms? I’m not so sure.

I worked for Reuters for 17 years (before Thomson screwed it up), where truth and accuracy trumped timeliness. All news stories had to be verified by two independent sources before they were published on Reuter’s news feeds. I assume (but don’t know for sure) that this still happens. Perhaps I’m in a shrinking minority who still prefer truth and accuracy over timeliness – not everything that is instant is good or right!

Not that I've ever been to a party where someone jumped out of a cake, but I nevertheless find the origins of these "traditions" quite interesting. I wonder if life now is any more or less decadent than what is revealed in this article? 
Diane F. asks: Who started the tradition of girls jumping out of cakes? Almost everyone has seen depicted the bizarre bachelor party tradition of a scantily-clad woman jumping out of a giant cake. It turns up most often in decades-old films, TV shows, and comics, but it still persists today at lavish Vegas shindigs—though the cakes are now usually made [...]

From knowledge trees to neural and social networks. Excellent talk and visuals on how information is organised and how knowledge spreads. #km  
How does knowledge grow? Sometimes it begins with one insight and grows into many branches; other times it grows as a complex and interconnected network. Infographics expert Manuel Lima explores the thousand-year history of mapping data — from languages to dynasties — using trees and networks of information. It's a fascinating history of visualizations, and a look into humanity's urge to map what we know.

To connect the hundreds of thousands of machines that make up a Google data centre, you can’t just use a few basic routers and switches. So to manage all the data flowing between its servers, Google has been building its own hardware and software, and today, it’s pulling back the curtain and giving us a look behind the evolution of its networking infrastructure.

Google stumbles but realises (finally) that most people don't want to hop between multiple social networks. Perhaps now it can get back to what it does best - helping us to manage our data and information. #google

A new post on how the big information aggregators are turning away from algorithmic curation and recruiting human beings to add value. #curation  
As I ponder my forthcoming session on the topic of “Content Curation” at the CILIP Conference in Liverpool this Friday 3rd July, I'm aware that the slides I was asked to prepare and submit to the organisers last month are already out of date. Unsurprising I guess given the rapidly changing ...
